Importing IE Favourites after reinstall of Win 7


I have installed a new larger hard drive into my computer and have reinstalled windows 7. This is the first time I have done this and did not realise that I needed to Export all my IE favourites. I simply copied the Favourites forder and all it's contents to a backup drive. Now I want to place all the Favourites back into IE. I can Import them from the folder one at a time but I have loads and it would take hours! Is there a way to get all my Favourites back into IE? Thanks

Select all and then copy into your favourites folder. "C:\Users\Your name\Favorites"

Anyone know why it is that every time I go to 'My Favourites' and click on Windows 7 Forums I am told the heading is inaccurate, go to the internet and search for it, or some such message please?
